My mom passed away recently and I can't sign into her laptop to retrieve old family photos. Is there a way to do that without losing everything?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We get questions like this almost daily. There are tools that a PC repair shop can use to restore the password and that is the usual recommendation. The reason is we cannot be sure you are the authorized owner of the computer and will not provide info on how to break the security put in place. When it comes to passwords it’s best to make it something easily remembered like song lyrics. Just throw in a few uppercase letters and a number and you should be able to remember it easily in the future.
